About the Work
"'Bedroom Theater' uses my unmade bed after a turbulent night’s sleep as a nest for scans and photographs of finished paintings, drawings and collages, together with packaging from a mundane purchase and a ripped piece of a cigarette box. Seen together in varying degrees of digital resolution and offset registration, the totality of these moves form a landscape in which an anxious harmony is achieved. Here is my own carbon footprint, my own debris - always watched by the Three Shades." - Augustus Thompson
In 2015, Augustus Thompson presented an installation and performance at Night Gallery in Los Angeles along with designer Lizzie Owens and exhibited his work at the Zabludowicz Collection (London, UK), as well as at the Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens (Ghent, Belgium) with The Still House Group. As an artist-in-residence with The Still House Group, Thompson has also exhibited in shows at Palace 88 in the East Broadway Mall (New York City), Fondazione Museo Pino Pascali (Polignano, Italy), and NADA 2013 (Miami, Florida). Solo shows were held at Steve Turner Contemporary (Los Angeles), Still House (Brooklyn), Ed Varie (New York) and Inside the White Cube (London). Augustus Thompson was born in 1985 in Richlands, Virginia and earned a BA at University of California, Santa Cruz. He lives and works between Los Angeles and New York.
Authentication & Resale
This work is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity signed and numbered by the artist.

All of our frames are made from sustainably sourced engineered hardwood that is manufactured in the USA. Frames are available in Black or White Matte and Walnut.
Prints are hinged to a conservation quality, acid-free and lignin-free Cellulose matboard, using acid-free polyethylene cloth tape. Each mat’s surface paper is fade and bleed resistant and is attached to a conversation quality foam-core board. Some of our work (typically those pieces with a deckled edge) is floated on the matboard with spacers to separate the artwork from the glazing.
We use museum quality .060 mm plexiglass to frame your work. It blocks 82-85% of UV rays to prevent color fading from exposure to light, protecting your art for years to come.
Our White and Black frames have a ⅞” wide flat face and are 15/16” deep. Mats are 1” wide for prints up to 8” x 10”. Mats are 2” wide for prints larger than 8” x 10”.
Our Natural and Walnut frames have a ¾” wide flat face and are 1 ⅛” deep. Mats are 1” wide for prints up to 8” x 10”. Mats are 2” wide for prints larger than 8” x 10”.
